Despite good intentions, you feel like roommates or coworkers more than lovers. You long for the days when it was easier…passionate...fun. Heck, even a day without whiplash of constant bickering and icy silence sounds amazing. Sure, you’ve got your own stuff to work on, but surely relationships shouldn’t mean putting up with so much all the time. You want to know your partner has your back and loves you. You want more than gimmicks, podcasts or pop-psych literature to figure things out. You’re honestly trying and ready for meaningful, practical change. Now is the time to find space to slow down and finally reconnect in a new way.

I primarily use Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) which is a highly researched and effective treatment focusing on the emotionaI bonds between partners.
When we have healthy relationships with those that are important to us, life tends to run more smoothly. When this is not the case our lives can feel out of control and we can become anxious, frustrated, angry or depressed. I enjoy working with couples as they work to create and maintain healthy and fulfilling relationships. I also work with individuals as they struggle with many of life's concerns and difficulties. I always consider a clients family of origin experiences to discover possible connections in their way of dealing with difficulties in the present.

I believe relationships have long-lasting healing power. Romantic, parent/child, friendship, or even your relationship with yourself, when these bonds are healthy, they help heal many wounds. But sometimes things get in the way of your goals for your life and relationships – trauma, beliefs that hurt instead of help, new mental health symptoms, or behaviors that aren’t working for you. I come alongside clients and help them learn new ways to understand and cope with these issues. One of my favorite things is helping couples learn to change unhealthy patterns and build the relationship they’ve always dreamed of.
